Ronnie Wood is reportedly set to marry his 20-year-old lover.

The 61-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist - who sparked huge controversy last year after leaving his wife of 23 years to be with Ekaterina Ivanova - has told friends he has found "a new lease of life" since dating the Russian waitress.

Before he can marry Ekaterina, Ronnie must divorce estranged wife Jo and he is determined to protect his £60 million fortune.

A friend of Jo's said: "She is devastated and now knows there is no turning back in their marriage.

"Ronnie wants the divorce to be over as soon as possible so he can marry Kat.

"Jo always believed this was just a silly fling that would soon blow over.

She worked really hard to remain on good terms with Ronnie. But instead of sorting things out he wants to fight out any claims in court."

A major charitable foundation in Los Angeles has said that jailed Wall Street money manager Bernard Madoff swindled it out of US$18 million. The Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles reported that the foundation invested the money from a common investment pool with Madoff starting in 2004. Foundation president Marvin Schotland told AP that the loss represented less than 3 per cent of the group's total assets, which totaled about US$ 670 million at the end of 2008. The group is one of Los Angeles' 10 largest foundations.

Madoff is in jail pending sentencing for stealing billions of dollars from investors in what could be the biggest scam in Wall Street history. Foundation spokeswoman Lynn Fireside says the foundation would be able to recover at least US$ 500,000 of the lost money after Madoff's assets are liquidated.

A Brazilian Archbishop has accused Jews of exaggerating their suffering during the Holocaust.

Archbishop Dadeus Grings of Porto Alegre in Rio Grande de Sul said in a magazine interview: “The Jews talk about six million people killed. But how many Catholics were victims of the Holocaust? There were 22 million in all…the biggest victims were the gypsies because they were exterminated. And [the Jews] don’t mention this.”

Veteran Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal said in 1984 that the gypsies were murdered in a proportion similar to Jews.

The archbishop’s comments mean further embarrassment for the Catholic church following Pope Benedict XVI’s rehabilitation of Holocaust denier Bishop Richard Williams.

A senior presidential envoy, say, Vice President Joe Biden, is dispatched to the region and does not leave until both sides' leaders sign an agreement to divide the land and to form a Palestinian state.

Obama breaks loose from the Jewish lobby's terror and gives Israel an ultimatum: No more financial aid or political support until Israel dismantles all its settlements and roadblocks, and withdraws to the agreed-upon borders.
